Metabolism is the process of converting food consumed into useful energy that the cells can use. This process ranges from simple to complex steps that are focused on breaking down food into the material that the body will use in performing important daily functions. It is a completely enzymatic process and examples of the enzymes used are maltase, trypsin, amylase, and lipases.
Any condition that inhibits the normal working of metabolism is a metabolic disease. Such diseases cause the body to become unable to complete the crucial process of processing and transporting nutrients within the time needed for survival.
Most of the conditions that plague the body’s metabolism are hereditary. They may be silent for days, months, or even years but it doesn’t mean they are not there.
Who is at Risk?
Some factors contribute to putting people at more risk of metabolic disease. These include:
- Family history
Many metabolic diseases are hereditary. This study shows just how high the risk of a metabolic disease can be when a member of a family has suffered from it, The rest of the family are often advised to take all necessary precautions and carry out regular medical checkups.
Amongst other negative effects, smoking predisposes a person to serious medical problems including metabolic diseases. Smokers are at a higher risk of getting metabolism problems and they would be even more likely to get it if they have a family history of the same.
- Alcohol abuse
Abuse of alcohol by drinking excessively puts a lot of strain on the liver and kidney which are the main organs involved in processing the alcohol consumed.
Alcohol also has a high glycemic index that causes a rapid release of sugar into the bloodstream. This is highly unhealthy and over time, can lead to metabolic diseases.
How to Know if You have a Metabolic Disease
The presence of metabolic diseases is not hard to detect once the symptoms begin. However, some of them are silent and can go undetected for days, months, or years. In such cases, early diagnosis can be achieved through screening procedures. The common symptoms of metabolic diseases are:
- Severe hydration
- Kidney failure
- Heart failure
- Chronic diarrhea
- Eating disorders such as anorexia
- Breathing problems
- Muscle spasms
Prevention of Metabolic Diseases
To prevent metabolic diseases, these four methods top our list.
- Regular check
A comprehensive health screening can quickly let you know if your metabolism is proceeding normally. Checkups help to detect diseases very early and so they are prevented from becoming chronic. Since metabolic diseases can be silent only to show up when things have gotten worse, it is advisable to do regular checkups.
- Good hydration
Water is a nutrient that many people forget to add. Keeping yourself hydrated can protect your organs from becoming stressed because of the insufficiency of water, and that can save you a lot of trouble from metabolic diseases.
- Healthy diet
Eating right is something that we also recommend. Foods that irritate your digestive system should be avoided or at the very least, consumed minimally.
Treatment and Cure for Metabolic Diseases- Non-Drug Diseases
There are several non-drug treatments for metabolic diseases. We will examine them next.
- Mineral and Vitamin supplementation
Minerals and vitamins contribute a lot to the smooth running of the metabolic process in the body. You can find out if you have any mineral deficiency through our hair tissue mineral analysis. Some of them are part of the building blocks of the enzymes that move the process forward.
If your body is deficient in certain minerals and vitamins, it could lead to serious problems. Getting the required minerals/vitamins is best done by the use of IV drips. These drips help to deliver the supplements quickly to the required areas in the body, since it bypasses the gut where slowdowns in the release could happen.
Available IV Drips
- Myers Cocktail
- COQ10 Injection
- Vitamin D
- IV laser treatment
- Myers Cocktail
It is a combination of a number of minerals developed by the late Dr. Myers, a Baltimore physician who used a concoction of vitamins and minerals to treat a wide range of medical issues.
The amount of clinical issues available on the topic can’t said to be in abundance, but one study found it to be effective against a raft of diseases like chronic sinusitis, cardiovascular disease, acute asthma attacks, etc.
- COQ10 Injection
The COQ10 Injection usually contains the natural antioxidant coenzyme Q10. This antioxidant is usually high in our bodies when we are youthful, as it is responsible for 95% of our energy production. The coenzyme’s production in our bodies decrease with age, however.
- Vitamin D
The Sunshine Vitamin helps to maintain proper mineral metabolism, prevent bone disease and also reduce bone fractures and loss of bone strength.
Vitamin D reduces inflammation and the probability of cardiovascular diseases. Diabetic patients also have a low level of vitamin D in their bodies.
- IV Laser Treatment
Our IV laser treatment uses low level of laser radiation in the blood to create interactions of molecules such as lipid-water, protein-water, etc.
Clinical use of IV laser includes stimulation of metabolism, immune protection, etc.
- Nutritional counseling
Since healthy nutrition is crucial to keeping the digestive system healthy, nutritional counseling is often used as a non-drug approach to treating metabolic diseases. After understanding your specific condition, the doctor can give you sound advice on what foods to avoid to remain healthy.
- EECP and blood circulation
EECP is used to help return as much as possible blood to the heart, and this means more oxygen supply to the body. This is done by the use of two inflatable cuffs on the lower legs that inflate and deflate in sequence with the heartbeat.
- Managing diabetes naturally
Managing diabetes naturally has to do with all non drug use of managing the disease. This is best done by proper exercise (since you get to use a lot of calories doing this) and eating right.
- Fatty Liver and related to liver detox
Fatty liver is basically cell death from a lack of glutathione. Glutathione is one of the main ingredients for the administration of liver detox. It’s an important antioxidant in the body, and without it, the liver suffers cell death. This is what causes fatty liver disease in both alcoholics and nonalcoholics.
Liver detox is quite a common term in the medical world. It has to do with getting toxins out of the body, so you’d feel lighter and better generally.
- Colon hydrotherapy
Colon hydrotherapy is the clearing of the colon with large amounts of water in a procedure that is carefully regulated. It helps in complete cleansing and making sure you have right immune system prevent from further damaging your health because of metabolic diseases.
